Notes

This bannerstone is broken at the spine either because the stone is weakest at the thin surface of the spine or because it was intentionally broken at the spine as is common with bannerstones. Both wings are exceedingly thin. With bannerstones broken at the spine, it is very rare to have both pieces in. The left wing is chipped at the edge. There are bits of wood and glue in the perforation left over from a recent attempt to reattach the two pieces together. The right wing is 7.6 and the left wing is 7.4.
